Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Rama v. Holder, No. 09-2156, concerned a petition for review of BIA's affirmance of an IJ's denial of Albanian family's application for asylum and an order of removal.
In denying the petition, the court held that the IJ's credibility determination is supported by reasonable, substantial, and probative evidence on the record considered as a whole. Consequently, because the court determined that petitioner's asylum claim fails, the court also affirmed the denial of petitioner's claim for withholding of deportation.
